Barriers being broken down.

THANK YOU to the greater Victoria community for participating in the 2nd annual Breaking Down Barriers Work Boot Drive between June 9th – 30th at Capital Iron.

The 2012 work boot drive brought in over 35 pairs of used work boots which will be given out to clients who are returning to work or who need them to continue to work.

Since the start of the campaign on June 9th, The Salvation Army have distributed 7 pairs of work boots to clients who have used them immediately to start a new job or continue working.  In addition to boots, The Salvation Army also distributed vouchers for work clothes, WHIMIS training, food and other supplies.

If you have gently used CSA approved work boots you can still donate them to people who can use them by bringing them to The Stan Hagen Centre for Families at2695 Quadra Street or The Addictions & Rehabilitation Centre at 525 Johnson Street.  If you are in another part of BC, bring your used boots to your local Family Services Centre.

We would like to thank our sponsors: Capital Iron, 100.3 The Q, Magnum Boots and Timberland Pro boots.
